BBQ-Picnic Checklist

BBQ - Picnic Checklist

Updated on: Mar 10, 2024

Welcome to our BBQ-Picnic Checklist! Everything you need to throw the most fun and fabulous picnic possible, right at your fingertips!

You’re sitting on a red checkered blanket in the park. The sun is out, the birds are chirping and there is a brown wicker basket by your side. A stereotypical picnic never sounded so good. However, planning this picture-perfect BBQ picnic can be a daunting task. That is why Easy Event Planning put together the perfect BBQ-Picnic Checklist. You want to be prepared when you go to a picnic and have everything you need right in front of you, especially to not disappoint your guests!

Any type of party planning can be overwhelming, but the planning checklists created by Easy Event Planning have many benefits:

5 Reasons to Use Our BBQ-Picnic Checklist

1. Event-specific

Like other websites, Easy Event Planning doesn’t use a generic party planning guide. This checklist was created specifically for BBQ picnics. It can be difficult sometimes to find assistance for an event as specific as a BBQ Picnic, but not with Easy Event Planning! We have this event and so many other specific checklists for an extremely wide variety of events, including some great ideas when trying to stay socially distanced during Covid-19.

2. Automatic Timeline

How long does it take to plan a BBQ Picnic? Well, that is completely up to you, and it is up to us to help you plan out everything before you get started! The checklists are automatically scaled to the exact amount of time you have to plan. Meaning you input your party date, and each task is assigned a due date based on how long you have to plan. If necessary, you can change or delete any tasks based on your needs. This eliminates the stress and anxiety associated with a pre-determined countdown or timeline.

3. Visuals

To make things even simpler, tasks are color-coded determined by their deadline. When a task is approaching, it turns yellow. Past due tasks turn red. Once a task is marked complete, it becomes green. This is not only visually appealing but it is easier to see at a glance what you need to do that day, especially if you're on a time crunch. It is also easy for others to see what they need to assist you with if you choose to share the checklist. Leading to my next point...

4. Shareable

The checklist can be easily shared with and accessed by anyone with a Gmail account. Within the checklist itself there is a space dedicated to assign tasks from the list. Type anyone’s name in the “person assigned” box to avoid working on the same party planning tasks.

5. Helpful Links

The template doesn’t just help you plan your time, it connects you with great resources in a single click.

  • Want to survey your friends to find the best time to hold your party? Links to useful websites and apps are included.
  • Budgeting is a huge part of party planning. It doesn’t need to be difficult, though! Just use our budget and expense worksheet, created just for a BBQ - Picnic! A link to this sheet will be included in the checklist.
  • Need to order supplies? We’ve got you covered. Just click!
